Happy Friday everyone!
Welcome to another weekly round-up post from our growing community of bloggers, writers, vloggers, podcasters, and other fellow content creators. Each and every week we hand-pick five top posts from a pool of the highest voted user-submitted/created posts in the community and include them in this weekly round-up blog post, along with the newsletter for all of our e-mail subscribers.
Here are this week’s (Nov 24 – Nov 30, 2018) most valuable posts from the /t/BES content creators community:
1. Productivity vs. Creativity, the Content Creator’s Catch-22
There’s a great fallacy of creativity — that it happens in a vacuum outside of spacetime, in some magical realm that produces sparkling idea unicorns. It’s not how it works.
2. The Latest Crop of Instagram Influencers? Medical Students
A growing group of current medical students are on track to achieve even greater fame, through their prodigious and aggressive use of social media, particularly Instagram.
3. How to Balance Full-Time Work With Creative Projects
Growing used to missing out takes time, but learning to say “no” to things—even when you truly wish you could do those things—is an indispensable tool for keeping focus/productivity.
4. Web Comic: Stay Positive
Building anything (like a blog, company, or social media presence) or getting anywhere isn’t always going to be easy. Keep moving. Stay positive. Don’t turn back at all costs.
5. A Major American Magazine Wants Me to Work For Free
Back in March, I was asked by a writer of a major business magazine if I wanted to be a contributing editor for the magazine in entertainment. I thought about it and said yes.
